In July the STARZ network will start running a mini-series based on KenFollett’s The Pillars of the Earth. This $40 million dollar, 8-partmini-series is produced by Ridley Scott and stars Donald Sutherland and IanMcShane. You can check out the trailer here:
Now this is how I wish they would handle something like Dark Tower or Dune. In an epic miniseries that looks this good.
Imagine it only cost them $40m to make an 8 part movie. Presumably 8 (16?) hours of footage and storyline to play out. And looks like decent actors too. Granted there doesn’t appear to be many special effects and no $20m players.
